Isaiah 27:4

_ _ Fury is not in me — that is, I entertain no longer anger towards my vine.

_ _ who would set ... in battle — that is, would that I had the briers, etc. (the wicked foe; Isaiah 9:18; Isaiah 10:17; 2 Samuel 23:6), before me! “I would go through,” or rather, “against them.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary
